2768 I was going to create a thread for this. You beat me to it.

The Untamed Earl has a jealous hero. She is using a friend to make him jealous and it works.

Have you read Lisa Kleypas? She cites McNaught as an early influence. Her Wallflower series is fantastic, but she has many more excellent books.
2768 From This Moment On has a hero who's described as louty and bearlike, although a very good fighter.

Mr. Impossible hero is perceived as dim-witted
Surrender to a Wicked Spy hero ..."


I loved all these books!

2768 The Sun and the Moon (Wexford Family #2) has a trailblazing heroine who is a university scholar.
2768 Not Quite a Wife has a very nice hero.

The Texan's Wager has a wonderful hero. It's not super detailed in the love scenes, but they are there.

2768 Good suggestions, Sonya. Zoe does have action packed books. Her Hellraiser series is also a good choice. Devil's Kiss is the first.

2768 Bonnie Vanak has a series set in Egypt with plenty of action. The Falcon & the Dove is the first book.

You might also enjoy City of Jasmine, set in 1920 in Damascus.

2768 Oh my favorite kind of hero. The hero is obsessed with the heroine.

2768 Lessons in French also qualifies.

2768 Thanks for pointing out I posted the wrong book, Nicole. Meant The de Burgh Bride. :)

2768 The De Burgh Bride has a heroine who behaves beastly and is unkempt due to some very serious abuse she's suffered and effects on her. The hero tames the beast by loving and accepting her. Thought it was well done.

Prospero's Daughter has a heroine who has given up on life (and looks pretty bad) due to her illness and being neglected by family, and the hero nurtures her back to health and wellness. While she has disabilities, they are not what make her beastly.

2768 Friday dreaming might work for you. It's very G-rated, just a heads up.

Summer Campaign had a friends to lovers storyline, although they didn't grow up together.
Tomboy Heroine? (17 new)

2768 I started a listopia for tomboy/women in pants heroines a while ago.

2768 Yes to most of Lisa Kleypas' heroes!
Sep 12, 2013 05:53PM

2768 Oh definitely Carter McKoy. What a wonderful man. The Texan's Wager

I have to agree with Lululemon that I'd avoid all the bodice ripper heroes like a plague, except for Ruark from Shanna.

2768 Allie's Moon is sort of what you asked for, but the bad sister is a real sister. She's really bad so definitely up your alley.

2768 I respect that, Fani! It makes for more drama. I think in the sense of money, it's so real life to have issues with it, so in books, I'd rather it wasn't a huge factor.

Good list, although I don't really like a monetary divide between the H/h.

I'm assuming you've read Devil in Winter? Probably one of the best with this theme.


@Heather, enjoy Devil in Winter.
